Xjob is a GUI task scheduler. The drag-and-drop GUI makes it easy to create and maintain complex job routines, and visualize each job as it is created. Xjob has proven itself under the most rigorous testing scenarios and industry applications. It can handle jobs ranging from simple FTP to integrated deployment of external programs and applications for complex jobs. A typical Xjob process retrieves files from FTP servers and e-mails from POP or IMAP servers. It then processes the files and sends them to a local disk or other servers via FTP or e-mail. Users can schedule multiple processes for Xjob as hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly jobs. It is completely fault tolerant and ensures that valuable data is never lost in the case of unexpected downtime. If any computer shuts down or is unavailable, Xjob's process verification ensures that the job will continue once the host computer is restarted. It runs on all systems that support Java, and provides a Web-based administration interface to monitor and control jobs. A built-in Web server displays statistics for current jobs via the Web.
